I love the double cheeseburger with grilled onions and bacon. The winter special of egg salad and tomato soup is also a favorite. The service is fast, using carhops!

When you're just feeling that craving, nothing beats a Swenson's burger, fries and a milkshake. Best there is!

Food and service were awesome as usual! Favorite burger place in Akron:) try the Galley Boy, it's a must along with fried mushrooms and the peanut butter milkshakes!

I have gone to this Swenson's since I was a kid growing up. It has a particular "niche" for people that like burgers in a Nostalgic type setting. The kids that work here run out to take orders and REALLY hustle! Not an easy job. But management really needs to wake up. We phoned our order in ahead of time.... More

Swensons has been around since I was a kid in Akron, Ohio and now they have more than one location. The best Burger for me is the Half Pounder with Cheddar Cheese and all the sauces. I also order the French Fries and the Onion Rings and a Large Diet Coke. Great Stuff. The servers normally run to your car... More

Great burgers, fries, BLTs and milkshakes!!! Half pound burger with mustard, ketchup and pickles is a great treat on a Friday after work. All shakes are great but Pumpkin and Coffee shakes really standout.

Thank BeagleOwner2015
